Yves Saint Laurent In Museums: A Tribute Exhibition In 6 Parisian Museums

On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Yves Saint Laurent's first fashion show, no less than 6 Parisian museums are mobilizing to pay tribute to this talented couturier. This exceptional cultural program is an opportunity to rediscover a designer and initials that have marked the history of fashion.

A large-scale tribute

Yves Saint Laurent is a monument in the history of fashion. That's why several Parisian museums have decided, on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the first fashion show of this French couturier, to pay him a tribute commensurate with his talent.

The first fashion show of this famous French designer was held on January 29, 1962 and this tribute retrospective began on the exact day of this 60th anniversary, January 29, 2022.

No less than six museums, including the Louvre, the Centre Pompidou, the Picasso Museum, the Musée d'Orsay, the Musée d'Art Moderne de Paris and, of course, the Yves Saint Laurent Museum are offering a special program around the couturier and his work through May 15, 2022.

This event entitled Yves Saint Laurent at the museums offers an XXL retrospective that highlights the reciprocal influence between this fashion designer and the arts.

A celebration at the crossroads of art and fashion

The great Yves Saint Laurent retrospective at the museums is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of this designer who revolutionized women's look, between chic and casual.

The 6 exhibitions that make up this event allow you to rediscover mythical creations of the couturier but also works of art that inspired his work.

Each participating Parisian museum offers a program around a particular theme and highlights one facet of the couturier's universe.

Six museums, six unique perspectives

As you can see, each of the 6 museums participating in the Yves Saint Laurent at the museums event focused on a particular aspect of the designer's world.

The Louvre Museum, for example, is dedicating its tribute exhibition to gold, a color adored by Yves Saint Laurent. The museum offers an exhibition of creations and inspirations of the couturier in a special scenography.

At the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, it is this designer's love for the play of color that is highlighted.

The Centre Pompidou pays homage to the modernity of this designer's creations. The Picasso Museum looks at the influence of the Spanish painter on YSL's work, while the Musée d'Orsay looks at the influence of Marcel Proust on his world...

Of course, the Yves Saint Laurent museum in Paris is the heart of this great event: it exhibits creations and archives of the house of Yves Saint Laurent that fashionistas and the curious will enjoy rediscovering in a new light, after visiting the other five exhibitions.
